Document Type: Journal Paper


Experimental data collected at many research laboratories are analyzed together with some river data; it is found that with uniform size materials, variation of resistance due to sediment bed irregularities is function of both sediment transport rate and Reynold's number based on fall velocity of sediment particle.
